Husky Bites presents Special Guest Paul van Susante

Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering—Engineering Mechanics
Affiliated Assistant Professor, Civil, Environmental, and Geospatial Engineering
Mining Innovation Enterprise (MINE) Faculty Advisor
Michigan Technological University


Students of MINE—Brenda Wilson (Lunabotics), Gabe Allis (DIVER), and Parker Bradshaw (Trencher)


On campus at Michigan Tech, a team of approximately 40 undergraduate students seeks to design, test, and implement robotic technologies for extracting and using local resources in extreme environments. That includes Lunar and Martian surfaces, plus flooded subterranean environments here on Earth. They tackle construction and materials characterization, too. It’s all part of MINE, the Multiplanetary INnovation Enterprise advised by Prof. van Susante. In addition, team members take part in NASA’s Lunabotics competition, as well as build and test robotic vehicles and technologies for a variety of clients, both government and private sector. During Husky Bites, we’ll also learn more about the fascinating research conducted in Prof. van Susante’s Planetary Surface Technology Development Lab. Check out the full blog post.

Join us early at 5:45 p.m. for conversation and a weather update.
